§ Mr. French
To ask the Secretary of State for Education if he will make a statement about teachers' pay in 1994–95.
§ Mr. Patten
I have today laid before Parliament a pay and conditions order bringing the provisions of the school teachers' pay and conditions document 1994 into force from 1 September 1994. Copies of this order are being sent to local education authorities, the chairmen of governors of grant-maintained schools and the teachers' and employers' associations.
The school teachers' pay and conditions document 1994 was published on 6 June following detailed consultation with the teachers' and employers' associations and representatives of the governors of voluntary schools and grant-maintained schools. The document sets out the statutory pay and conditions of service for teachers in maintained schools in England and Wales which will apply from 1 September.
